Résumé :

This book is a practical and pragmatic distillation of the psychiatry of relevance to the terminally ill. It reviews the major psychiatric syndromes encountered in palliative care depression, anxiety, delirium and examines psychopharmacological and psychological interventions in detail. It considers the psychiatric aspects of pain, sleep, cognitive impairment, terminal neurodegenerative diseases, sedation and artificial feeding. The dying chronically ill psychiatric patient is also discussed.

The author has drawn on his great experience in both consultation-liaison psychiatry and palliative medicine to produce an essential guide for all healthcare professionals involved in palliative care, including consultants and senior nurses, as well as psychiatrists, especially consultation-liaison psychiatrists, and trainees.
